There are several programs and applications out there that support the playback of M4A files. Some of them are Winamp, VLC Media Player, Windows Media Player, and QuickTime. The other programs that open M4A files are Microsoft Zune, Elmedia Player (for Mac users), Apple iTunes, Rhythmbox (for Linux users), and iPad.

Which other formats M4A can be converted into and why

M4A files may be a strong competitor to the MP3 file formats. Yet, this type of digital audio file format has many disadvantages, such as appearing as a data file (instead of a media or document), and low compatibility with some devices.

So, here are some of the other formats or alternatives to the M4A file format:

  1. 1. MP3
  2. 2 WAV
  3. 3. OGG
  4. 4. FLAC

One major reason why you might need to convert your M4A file is because it is a file extension, which means that only specific applications can open it. MP3 is supported by almost any device.

You may also want to convert it to AAC because it produces better sound quality, even at low bitrates.
